ANNOUNCING Field Trip: A pattern & illustration event!

Ampersand Design Studio

We are SOOOOO EXCITED to announce that we are co-hosting a new licensing event called Field Trip in New York on Monday, May 16th. Field Trip was conceived by a small, but diverse group of artists. Our aim is to create a lively environment where clients may purchase or license new artwork and discuss collaborations. This event is happening at the same time as Surtex/NSS/ICFF, so it will be easy to take a  field trip around the corner to see us! 

Field Trip will be held on Monday, May 16, from 2:30-7:30pm, at a gorgeous loft space in the garment district and will have a fun, casual feel with cocktails and nibbles.

Artists include:

Holiday Pop-up Shop Recap

Ampersand Design Studio

So many thanks are in order for what we feel was a wildly successful Pop-up on Thursday!! A giant shout-out to all the amazing KC shops that participated and wowed shoppers with their lovely products:  Happy Habitat,  Jaime Rovenstine,  Janesko,  Prairie GoodsAmpersand Design StudioNickel & Suede Convivial ProductionOcean and SeaMaddy Nash,  Alicia Janesko and  Survival Letterpress. There was just SO MUCH TALENT packed into our studio. We didn't want the temporary shop to be taken down!

Thanks a million to everyone who came out and shopped, chatted, had a few drinks and photo-boothed it up! It was so nice to see so many faces—old friends and new! What a great night all the way around and we have photographic proof of the good times. We had the best time looking through all of the pics from One Sparrow Creative!

Our minds are already racing about having another one in the spring! We can't wait to do it again!

We were excited to debut a few new products at the pop-up and will be getting those live on our Etsy shop any day now! What do you think about our new platters (below)? We also had some brand-spankin' new phone cases for sale!

We are SOOO excited to kick off the holiday season with a little Pop-up shop in our own studio! We got to thinking it would be fun to pull together a few of our favorite local Kansas City makers to have a little shopping event, and before we knew it, we had what we think is a pretty killer group assembled. There are home goods, fine art prints, jewelry, leather goods, T-shirts, women's wear, ceramics, accessories, and the list goes on and on! Plus, we will even have a fun Photo Booth by the talented One Sparrow Creative to capture some memories of the night! There will be some snacks and drinks to get you in the shopping mood, and what's better than getting some shopping done early before madness of the holidays truly begins! We hope you can join us! Here's a look at the fabulous vendors who will be there (scroll down for links to their websites):

We Heart Kansas City: Finefolk Sprint / Summer 2014 Fashion Show Last Saturday the Ampersand ladies attended the Finefolk fashion show in Kansas City's Haw Contemporary. We drooled over the collections curated by owner Leslie Fraley! If you didn't get a chance to make it be sure stop by her boutique shop in the KC Crossroads to see her designer lines of clothes, accessories, and beauty products. The Kansas City fashion scene just keeps getting better and better, right? Let us know what you think!

From the Field: Mother's Day DIY event with Anthropologie

Ampersand Design Studio

Two weeks ago, we had the pleasure of hosting a Mother's Day DIY event with Anthropologie! We put together a really fun painted flower pot DIY that could be the perfect Mother's Day gift or just a colorful addition to your windowsill! The event was filled with more laughter and creativity than we could've imagined! We really wish you ALL could've been there, but just in case you missed it, these photos by the talented Eric Linebarger perfectly capture the festivities! Stay tuned for a follow-up post where we will include the full DIY for you to do at home!

The evening was filled with sweet treats, cocktails and the most fun gals in the city!

We had flower pots, paints, brushes and the fixings for a flower pick with a sweet sentiment! And never fear, we kept everyone's darling outfits free of paint with some canvas aprons!

We really can't get over how creative all of our guests were! Check out this darling mini-dot flower pot?!

Morgan was delivering succulent plants while Carrie was hard at work hand-lettering each guest's apron!

Biggest thanks to Emily & Jordan for helping us make this event happen!! Jordan, thank you for all of the paint-testing, flower-pot-reseraching, plant finding, picking up, setting up and cleaning up! Without your creativity, and fabulous DIY sensibilities, we never could've made this happen! Emily, thank you for tying up all of our loose ends! We are so lucky to get to work with you ladies!

We had so much fun with you all, let's do it again sometime, shall we?!

And biggest thanks also to Molly & Tiffany at the Leawood, Kansas Anthropologie store!! Thanks for making it so fun to plan this event together and for all of the sweet treats! We hope we get to partner with you again soon! PS - check out Carrie and Tiffany's cute baby bumps!!!
